BETA PHOTO: Dull Bulb marked.


Short but enjoyable face climb near the center of Power Plant Wall (see photo topo). Protects surprisingly well, although the crux moves at the top are protected by a shallow-placed blue camalot that you wouldn't want to see blow out -- but, hey, its quartzite. Put up by accident; we thought we were on Pipeline Sequence, but once we consulted the Ruckmans' 1998 guide, the light came on, so to speak.


See photo topo. The routes shown in the Ruckmans'’ guide are all to the right.


Single set of cams from micros to 2 ½ inches. Belay from bolts on top of Pipeline Sequence/Steepness and walk off.
